New York City - All-Out Lighting - May 18 & 19, 2019


New York City - All-Out Lighting - May 18 & 19, 2019

  • Are your dream clients out of reach because your lighting is flat and boring?

  • Do you wish someone would show YOU how to master your lighting game?

Sponsored by Broncolor and led by award-winning photographer, Eric Garcia-March, at the Hasselblad NY Experience Studio, All-out Lighting is a two-day bootcamp that teaches the ins-and-outs of lighting in all conditions. Day 1 is studio lighting and Day 2 is natural light. There will be a limited number of X and H series Hasselblad cameras on hand for you to use during the workshop.

Whether shooting fashion, portraiture or fine-art photography, all lighting conditions will be covered in just two days! This bootcamp consists of lectures, demos, black and white image processing, working with a wardrobe stylist, makeup artists, hair stylists, as well as a mini portfolio review by creative director, Glenn Batkin, and a whole lot of hands-on shooting and experience shooting models and actors.

What to bring:

  • A camera: DSLR, mirrorless or medium format with general knowledge of how to operate it manually.

  • Lenses: one wide, one long lens and a zoom would be preferable. If you only have one lens that works too.

  • Computers: your personal laptop is recommended but not required. If you want to shoot tethered, please bring your laptop. External hard drives are also recommended but not required. Please bring enough cards and a card reader if you are not shooting tethered.

  • Tripods: I recommend you bring one, but it is not required. I do not have a preference for a specific one. 

  • Knowledge of photography: experience levels of participants vary from intermediate to pro shooters. I will challenge everyone to get out of their comfort zones and learn something new. 

  • A good attitude: you are all here to learn. Please be coachable. My mission is for you to be the best photographer you want to be.
